Winners of the first AI in Finance Awards

Winners of the first AI in Finance Awards

The ‘AI in Finance’ course was designed, by CFTE and Ngee Ann Polytechnic, to deliver financial professionals a good understanding of emergent technologies shaping the industry’s future. Following on from the success of that programme, we partnered with Ngee Ann Polytechnic again to prepare an assignment that helps learners apply the expertise gained from the course into developing practical, real-world business ideas promoting AI in Finance.

This assignment would be assessed and selected candidates would be recipients of the inaugural AI in Finance Awards, an honour that illustrates their commitment and ingenuity.

Proposals and candidates would be assessed and whittled down into a shortlist of the 10 strongest ideas, with 3 winners to be decided by our judging panel of great industry expertise.


Our judging panel, which comprised of Janos BarberisPhilip Watson; Stephan Murer; Tanya AndreasyanWinnie Cheng and Liang Yansui – selected three standout candidates

Based in Singapore, he is rewarded for his paper on “Preparing for Death – Optimizing Estate Planning.”

Based in London, he is rewarded for his paper on his ‘Smart Knowledge Assistant.’

Based in Singapore, he is rewarded for his paper on “A simple AI solutions toolkit for common issues in NGO/Charity banking sector.”

The 3 winners will be rewarded with entry to the world’s largest financial technology event: the multi-day Singapore Fintech Festival. They will also gain access to a potential internship and networking session with KPMG Digital Village; Spark Systems Pte Ltd and V-Key. Additionally, there will be a 2-day session with Upskills AI experts. They will then present their ideas at an exclusive event organized by CFTE and Ngee Ann Polytechnic and hosted by Prudential. Following these rewards, the winners will be flown to Europe in December where they will have the opportunity to gain valuable insight by being introduced to the AI ecosystem in London.

We feel these rewards delivers on the promise made to make your AI idea a reality, and connects the team of experts associated with CFTE with genuine talents who otherwise may not have a voice.
